The Concert


RCIN 404978

This painting represents two musicians tuning up. A young violinist is accompanied by a brightly dressed older lute-player with a large plumed hat. Both figures gaze outwards as if focusing their attention on someone beyond the picture plane. The tenor shawm (a reed instrument resembling an oboe) suggests they may await a third player.
